  1. Found a unicorn

    New Member Introductions
    My last B5 wagon died after 315 xxx kms but last weekend I picked up a rare 1.8T, manual, 4Motion wagon and am stoked. No sunroof that can leak, good leather interior, needs a tuneup and then I’m going to stage 1 the ECU and enjoy it. Already got new winters for next year...
  2. Found loose o-ring in valve compartment, 2002 Passat 1.8T, 4-cylinder

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi. I drive a 2002 VW Passat 1.8 L Turbo, 4 Cylinder. In December I took it to a cheap mechanic shop to have the oil changed, because I couldn't afford the $115 it costs at the independent VW mechanic. The shop told me they used full synthetic like they were supposed to. A month later, the...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Finally picked up my car... All i an say is that i am pleased. A few things will require my attention. Such as a rns510 not acquiring any satellites, a weird squealing when engaging from a dead stop in 1st gear (manual) ... A really bad alignment....the rest of the car is good. But... I found...
  7. Found a NEW Genuine B5 OEM Votex Trunk Spoiler. Some questions about this rare item.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know this has been discontinued for almost ten years. I have not had any luck finding this new or used in any color, let alone in my color, Black Magic. The only other options that exist are weird Chinese trim things that look a bit weird. The genuine Votex one has an integrated brake light...

  9. Wastegate Found in Cat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Several years back my turbo stopped working. Actually it hadn't been working very well for a few years, it was loose and jingling. Anyway, I found the wastegate a few years later when I replaced the downpipe. I can see why it wasn't working well even before it detached. It's actually worn oval.
  10. Found a new top 5 all time worst on the Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've posted on this before, and I have stated that changing out the clutch master cylinder is definitely in the top 5 list of most undesirable jobs to do on the Passat. Well today, I've come to another conclusion and a new top 5 worst addition. Changing out the rear wheel bearing hub with a non...
  11. 2.0L AZM engine found vacuum leak, what is this pipe?

    B5 Garage
    Last October I got a 2001 Estate with a 2.0L AZM engine. Never had or fixed cars before, but just in case when I got the car I bought a VAG-COM from ebay. A couple of weeks ago it started shaking at idle. I already had a CEL from SAIS before (since last year already), but when I connected the...
  12. Guess I found the wife's Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I have some good news, I suppose...Following this plan of sticking to "babied" Passats I came across an 02 V6 4-motion sedan for sale by a Subaru dealership with 145k, a trade-in. Just bought it today for $1k. Drives solid, no rust. Still unsure this will end up being a good deal but...
  13. 2000 Passat Wont Start, found broken hose V6

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all, A few weeks ago my 2000 Passat began acting odd. When I would attempt to start the vehicle it would not start, it would not even attempt to start, I thought the issue was the battery, but it was not, then replaced the starter and still the same issue. I was still having the same...
  14. Rough idle, pulling all of the p300,1,2,3,4 codes and found broken valve, please ID

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So rough idle on my 2004 passat 1.8t, especially in the AM. Been getting P300, P301, etc codes to my OBDII. Was planning on changing plugs this weekend, but while taking cursory look at motor, I spotted this: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet I can't seem to get the two ends to...
  15. Found this after pullling carpet

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As part of my '99 "restoration project" after pulling the carpet (the block and heads are at the shop getting zero-timed. Thanks KSEADUB and AndreasPassat for the inspiration, I'm now going deeper into the rabbit hole!) I found this while cleaning. This view is of the passenger side floor...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Wife drive car home said it was making a clanking sound. Parked it in the driveway. Trans is in N no matter where the shifter is although I believe I am hearing it click thru the different positions. E brake is hold it from rolling right now. I had a VAG COM ordered as last owner didn't know...
  17. I'm glad I found this place!

    New Member Introductions
    Posting to gain access lol. I recently aquired an early 2001 Passat V6 Tiptronic. Unfortunately someone with "awesome mechanical ability" had worked on it before it sat for several years. They apparently didn't have torx so they just ripped the dash panels out and broke everything. Now I need...
  18. 07 3.6 dealer found faults P310B Low Fuel Presure and P030 Cat Eff any thoughts?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    The dealer advised that I needed to replace fuel pump and module. Last year they replaced the fuel pressure sensor because of high idle when stopped, this did not fix the high idle issue. The car still runs and the CAT is a DEC only 3 months old. Any thoughts, car has 130K? Thanks, Steve::D
  19. Hello forum! I am glad I found you.

    New Member Introductions
    I am not new to forums but obviously new here. I have owned a number of air cooled vw's but only one water cooled (1988 Cabriolet). I thought I would be posting that I just purchased a 2004 4motion 5 speed with a 1.8L turbo but it was sold from under me. My intention was to drive it for the...
  20. Key Not Found

    New Member Introductions
    Been getting the dreaded 'key not found' but it seems to work if I get out of the car and open and close the trunk. When the wife uses it, it comes up more often. Done a few searches and I hate to take it to dealer for a few hundred bucks if there is a simple fix. Any theories?
